WD_BLACK SN850 NVMe PS5 is born from the collaboration between two top companies, Sony and Western Digital . It comes to us as the first PlayStation 5 licensed SSD references .

WD_BLACK SN850 NVMe PS5, tested and certified by Sony

The Sony brand opened up its PlayStation 5 with support for external SSD drives. Several companies, including Western Digital , have since embraced the opportunity by distributing their own compatible drives. Now WD and Sony announce the first official internal SSD certified for PlayStation 5 .

Product Details

The first officially licensed SSD for the PlayStation 5 is the reference SN850 NVMe . The component has the PlayStation logos , certifying the product as an accessory that will work on PlayStation 5 consoles without any problem. With this method, Sony itself closes the door to possible misunderstandings and problems for users of its console who want to increase the capacity of their device.

Those interested have at their disposal a couple of options of the SN850 SSD certified to work in the PlayStation 5 : with capacities of 1 TB and 2 TB . A space that should be enough considering the current requirements of games that work on consoles.

The drives’ PCIe® Gen4 NVMe™ technology ensures the performance you need for a smooth and responsive experience. Note that these models have a built-in heat sink compatible with the PlayStation 5 console , which prevents the disc from heating up and minimizes slowdown in the middle of battle. The 1 TB capacity unit is priced at €219.99 and the 2 TB unit has an official price of €334.99 .
